Announcing a Workshop on Aging in NF1

By June 22, 2011December 5th, 2023Awareness

We still have much to understand and address about the challenges faced by individuals with NF1 as they age. These span from the practical challenges of transitioning from pediatric to adult clinical care in young adulthood; to the clinical challenges of understanding how the clinical manifestations NF1 itself might progress as a person ages. This is an area of NF1 that has not been heavily studied and it is therefore good news that Dr. John Mulvihill is hosting a Workshop on Aging in NF1, September 9-10, 2011 at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, OK. This is the first announcement of this meeting, which is intended for clinicans and scientists with a research interest in this area. Those interested in participating should contact Dr. Mulvihill at or Shona Whitehead at This meeting is funded in part by a United States Department of Defense contract #W81XWH-06-1-0465.
